Festivals are around the corner and no festival is complete without sumptuous food and delicacies. But indulgences in festive foods don’t go without the guilt, the Statesman reported.
- Prepare home food and order from home chefs and home bakeries to keep a check on your oil quantity and quality intake.
- Plan your day before you go out to a party. Make sure you have your normal meals during the day and do not go to the party on an empty stomach. Have a soup or salad before you head out.
- Prioritize what you would want to eat. Start with fibers like salads or stir-fry vegetables that will keep you full and going for some time. Next you can have protein, like chicken or fish as your starters.
- Lastly, go ahead and indulge in a piece of dessert. Don’t waste away your calorie quota over a bowl of peanuts or a couple of chips.
- Another important point to note is, the next day do not go on a crash diet or detox, rather head out for a workout or chime in a walk to burn those calories you consumed the previous night.
